I'm wondering what you typed to get 'darn hot'. It couldn't have been that bad.
"I could relax, knowing that I wouldn't have to deal with questions or feel self-concious about things." I would have given anything to have had that when my daughter was a baby, but since her birthmark was/is on her face, I couldn't really hide it. (It protruded 3+ inches from the side of her head.)
I didn't mean that people who wear the goth stuff won't get ahead in life, just that at a certain point, it doesn't work anymore. I can't imagine an old man, or woman for that matter dressing up.
I'm glad it's something that helped you though.
